Rig Recon Episode 4: Beat The Heat

Wednesday, July 8th, 2020

A little known secret is that heat is the enemy of LED lighting fixtures. Heat buildup lowers the output over time and decreases their life spans. It also has an impact on raw lumens versus effective lumens. Have a watch of our latest episode and be sure to understand if your fixture is made for the long haul.

Rig Recon Episode 3: Bending Light To Your Will

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020

When it comes to scene lighting optics and lens design, this is where engineering and attention to detail separates what is available out in the market. Learn how we bend light to give the most effective scene lighting out there. Be sure to follow Rig Recon for more info on rig spec ideas and product information.

BENDING LIGHT TO YOUR WILL…When it comes to scene lighting optics and lens design, this is where engineering and attention to detail separates what is available out in the market. In this episode we talk about reflection versus refraction, and how bending the light to where you want it can offer wide and even coverage. ‘Blare and Glare’ can waste a lot of light output, and a well-designed lens offers more than just protection from the elements, it distributes light uniformly even straight down giving you workable light across the entire scene.

Rig Recon Episode 1: What the Lux?

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020

Are you following Rig Recon yet?

A street level approach to rig spec starts with breaking the big things down. The first big thing we are going to tackle is scene lighting. In our first episode of Rig Recon we bring you “What the Lux?” where we first have to get some baseline info clear like what is the difference between Lumens and Lux.

Look for more to follow with things like color temperature for making the scene effective, and optics so you get even light disbursement without blinding oncoming traffic and operating crews.
